New friends?

Hello! I'm Sydney! I've recently moved journals for a fresh start, but I'm a longtime LJ user who would love to make some new friends. Writing here is important to me and right now I'm going through a bit of a transitional phase in my life, so I'm hoping I can meet some fellow active users with some similar interests to share the journey with.

I’m really interested in adding journals that are personal in nature and discuss daily life, and would like to meet people who have the potential of blooming into real friends and confidants. I have my own issues like everyone else, but I avoid excessive negativity as that's not the kind of stuff I want to record. My f-list is made up of all kinds of people, as long as you're respectful and kind-hearted I would love to befriend you and get to learn about your life. I comment whenever I feel like I have something relevant or supportive to add, and I don’t expect anything more in return. Dialogue is important to me, and I would love to add people who I feel I have some things in common with.

My own journal is personal in nature, a mixtape of my favourite things and a place to record rambling thoughts and snapshots of daily life. I post about the things I'm interested in, the things I get up to, and my thoughts and feelings on any particular day.

A little bit about me:

✩ I've recently completed an illustration degree, and drawing and creativity is a huge part of my life.
✩ I really love musical theatre, and visit the West End as often as I can. My favourite shows are Les Misérables and Wicked.
✩ Astrologically I'm water dominant. Feeling everything so deeply and intensely is both a blessing and a curse.
✩ I'm a bookworm and love reading, mostly classic fantasy (ie, Alice in Wonderland, the Oz series, Wind in the Willows, Moomins, etc) as well as horror - I adore Stephen King, Shirley Jackson, and classics like Mary Shelley and Bram Stoker.
✩ I'm passionate about classic rock music from the '60s and '70s, especially Pink Floyd.
✩ I love fashion. I'm a dressmaker, and I love Japanese street fashion, vintage clothing, and theatrical costuming. Most of my wardrobe is either handmade, vintage, or from Japanese brands.
✩ I also love movies, rooting through junk shops, wandering around nature, people watching in coffee shops, and taking photos of just about anything. I like sunflowers, the colour orange, Studio Ghibli, psychedelic patterns, fairy tales, and anything spooky and atmospheric.
✩ I'm basically a huge dork, and I enjoy flailing about musicals, music, and fictional characters.

Let's be friends? ♡
